Have you seen Mary Weeks Lambeth's "Memories and Records of Eastern North
Carolina"? It is long out of print, but it has lots and lots of Spruill
history--Spruill being one of her family lines.
Camille Everton told me that "all Spruills" (don't know whether she meant
literally "all" or not) go back to "Old Samuel"--meaning Samuel Spruill, of
course. But somehow, the links I need seem to be lost. I keep hoping that
someone has the key.
If you can get a copy of the Lambeth book, it might possibly help you, but
I am not sure. I have a photocopy of it, not the real thing, but Teresa
said that she somehow found a copy. (I am referring to Teresa Kelley, of
course.) I don't remember how she found hers.
Anyway, I am afraid that I have nothing that would help you. Do you have
Camille Everton's "Tyrrell County Cemeteries" book? That is very helpful
in locating gravesites in Tyrrell-Washington, and parts of Dare County.
If you want a copy, email me direct and I will tell you how to get it. It
is out of print, but I think there are still a few copies available. I am
just not at liberty to publish the info online.
